The secret to the business’s progress, according to the company, is incorporating non-speech noises into its audio and teaching its AI models to replicate those minute intakes of air — tiny scoffs and half-hidden giggles — that give actual speech its biological authenticity mark.

Event technology is critical to marketing success - Here’s why?

In a world of remote-first experiences, marketers would be wise to integrate event technology into their stacks. With so many people working remotely or in hybrid positions, event marketers often find themselves competing with other virtual experiences. There are simply too many distractions vying for audiences’ time, whether it be social media, entertainment channels, educational videos or other kinds of content.

Look, touch, feel: Experiential marketing.

The odds of success for your service or product are exponentially increased when a consumer experiences your brand up close and personal versus seeing an online ad or commercial on TV. Why? In-person, a consumer is in a focused environment and you have their full attention. Imagine your odds of conversion being in front of your consumer/client.
